Nothing ugly about this story — except the spelling error. Joseph “Cabriel” is actually Cabral.

Here is Cabral’s farm on Locust Street, where Sparhawk Drive is today.

  1. I was interested in the real estate transfer from Nellie Taylor to Edward Carroll. Edward Carroll is my Greatgrandfarther , my fathers mothers father. My father grew up on that farm and later purchased part of the farm at the town line where I grew up.
    Later the farm was owned by the Wilkish family and then was divided up and became Eisenhower Dr, Lisa St, Guild Rd Radcliff St.
